Teaching support for GCSE Music 2016

We're continuing to develop support material for the new GCSE in Music. We've now published notes and support guides on all of the set works for GCSE along with some exemplar marked work for the appraising component. Also available are some exemplar ensemble arrangements to show what types of arrangements meet the requirement of an ensemble performance. All of these can be downloaded from the GCSE (9-1) Music course materials.

Training events

We're holding face-to-face and online Getting Ready to Teach events for the new specification from this month.
